Well-known eastern Iowa truck stop will get bigger

Posted: Updated:

 WALCOTT (AP) -- A well-known truck stop in eastern Iowa that bills itself as the world's biggest will get even larger as crews begin a $10 million expansion and remodeling that will create more retail space and expand a food court.
   The Quad-City Times reports the expansion will add 23,000 square feet of space to the truck stop, which already had a main building of about 100,000 square feet. The truck stop, about 10 miles northwest of Davenport, sprawls across 200 acres.
   Delia Moon Meier, senior vice president of the group that owns the truck stop, called it a "re-make of everything."
   Meier says the move is driving by changes in the trucking industry that has led truckers to buy more "grab-and-go" food because they don't have time to stop for lunch.
